Great location to visit Harare, downside is that because it's so central it can be quite noisy. Bathroom wasn't up to b standard of rest of room, shower leaked

A good hotel for the location
The hotel is a bit dated looking, but for the part of town it's in you're unlikely to find anything better. My room was generously sized and the bathroom was clean. Good breakfast options - just wish the coffee was not the same as the granulated stuff you get in the hotel room. The staff were very helpful. They printed off a flight boarding pass for me, which I appreciate, and gave me a bowl to have some noodles in my room in the evening.

The place was clean. Even though the economy is bad right now , it’s nice to still come to a hotelthat still maintain excellent standards. I love coming to Cresta and the stuff is wonderful. Good people😊😊😊

Harare hotels are priced quite steeply so Jameson is a pleasant surprise. The staff are very friendly and helpful and attend promptly to queries. The carpets in reception really need to be thrown away. They make reception look dirty.

Good Hotel in Downtown Harare
I was pleased with the hotel and would stay there again when I return to Harare. It is well located for the downtown area, clean, and everything works. The staff is first rate. The food in the dining room, dinner and breakfast was very good. Billing and follow through on pricing left something to be desired but I would be much more adamant on receiving the proper rate before I went to the room.
